Any other?

Not that it might see any immediate light, considering the speed at which the admin change their routes, but it is a clear indication that these "altenate" routes are getting popular.

That, alternate route has got quite popular already. A lot of people have started taking that route as a means of daily commute.
While most drive, taking into consideration the rules of driving on village routes, one always find a moron who thinks its his forefathers road.

So, main route or alternate, morons remain to give you company.

I've taken this route in the past and twice in this week already and the traffic has gone up significantly. However it is still moving traffic and has taken me just 30 mins from Ph2 to NH4 at Pashan -Sus road.

Point to note is that there are stretches where overtaking is outright dangerous. Best thing is to drive on road center and overtake when the road widens.

This was posted on my company discussion forum; I'm assuming the link would have been shared with other organizations too. Not sure if there is any active link/website online that has a similar motive/purpose, sharing this in case if it is helpful to others.

^ Had forwarded that link to a few friends and know of a couple that have already registered.
The good thing about that car pool is, its dynamic. Thus giving the car owner and the car pooler the flexibility to choose on given dates and not an everyday occurance.

Funny incident!
Most probably some Ad agency was trying to shoot DUSTER in surroundings of Phase 3. They were having Black top end duster with TN-19 passing permanent plate. It was group of 6-7 people. I've observed them for good 1 hour but serioulsly they just kept arguing in themselves about one point:

why this location?
Finally they took one shot of vehilcle in motion and there comes killer dialog:

It's 5:15 already and we should have left by now to avoid HJW traffic as per traffic guidelines (from tapriwala)

I thought to share alternate route with them, but then left as they looked so horrified with trafic tales of tapriwala near by.

you should have sent them offroading in some direction. we would have at least found out the Duster's true capabilities

I thought you were out of HJW, no?

Whats with the cops closing the extra lane ?

I admit I came in late yesterday, but the amount of traffic was simply humongous. First gear crawl all the way from Bridge to Ph1. Found that the cops had closed off the extra lane, but attributed to me being later than usual.

However, even today, the cops had closed off the lane near Marriott , and were asking them to merge with the regular traffic flow on the "correct" side of the road.

EDIT : I havent taken the Ph-1->Main Road->Right turn under the flyover route for many days in the evenings. How is the traffic these days, between 6.30 and 8 pm ?

Have been taking the Pashan - Chande Village - Phase 3 route while coming to office as well for the last couple of days.

With the Ganpati festival approaching the donation collectors with receipt books were trying to collect money near Chande Village. There was a group of 4-5 boys on the road near Chande Village stopping cars and asking for money. They stopped me as well and knocked on the window. Asked me where i was going? I simply pointed my finger in the general direction of Hinjewadi. Before they could ask for the donation started moving very slowly. Surprisingly there was no resistance and i could drive off.

I think they came in phase 3 with some shot in mind. But some how they were not convinced with what they got .

P.S: 18th will be Last day in HJW. Hurray! I hope when I'll return in future conditions will be in good shape!

That we surely do.

I have been sent on deputation to the land of horrendous traffic; yes, Bengaluru!!!
Have been here only 2 days, and have sworn- never ever will I crib on traffic scene being bad in Pune. You need to be here to experiance real traffic.

HJW is nowehere close to Bangalore city, where traffic is concerned.

So you are implying that all that cribbing by Hinjewadikars is because of the Frog-in-the-well (Kue ka mendak) syndrome that we suffer from ?

IMHO, HJW is quite dusty and not quite as refined a location for shooting ads as Magarpatta.
